Odegaard and Saka – Best on-pitch telepathy since Dennis and Freddie!

Let’s be honest, other than a slightly less than exemplary defensive showing by Arsenal at Watford it was as fluid and exciting at times as we have seen the attacking play under Arteta. There is so much to be happy about, not least the fact that the Gunners now sit fourth, with 3, yes, 2 […]

Here we are back again with Arsenal Youth expert, John Williamson (@willow1886) and I suspect, with respect to all our recent subjects, this is an interview that our readership has been waiting for. Yes, in the week, Arsenal signed Thomas Partey, potentially the most complete all-round central midfielder we have had since the great Patrick […]

Arteta needs to change Pepe’s role to see best of him – Learn from Pires and Ljungberg

    Our record signing, Nicolas Pepe, had an OK season in 19/20. He contributed well in the FA Cup Final and scored some important goals at times. The free-kicks vs. Vitoria Guimaraes, at home vs. Man United, and Brighton away (even though we lost) show our quality. But he was inconsistent and perhaps given […]

Kanu, Iwobi, Okonkwo – Is Arsenal’s next Nigerian Star set to breakthrough?

For the subject of this week’s interview – U23 Goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo – I’m tapping into the considerable knowledge of John Williamson: few know more when it comes to Arsenal’s Youth. The young shot-stopper came to most of our attention when Unai Emery included him in the travelling squad to Napoli in 2018/19. Arthur returned having […]

Exclusive Scouting Interview on David Brooks – Should Arsenal challenge Man U and Leicester for the Creative Midfielder?

The transfer window officially opened last Monday, and as Mikel Arteta begins to make his plans for the future, one man who seems certain not to be a part of them is Mesut Ozil.

Arsenal’s 0-3 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday brought most people back down to earth following the amazing 9 minute spell which saw the Gunners end a nine-match barren run to win 3-1 at West Ham. It also highlighted just how bad things are. As many of the older generation reflect on how current day […]

Did Arsenal play Norwich or Arsenal? [Positive Needs & Hopes]

‘DID ARSENAL PLAY NORWICH OR ARSENAL?’ Positives, Needs and Hopes If you could pick the most important need for improvement on the field, what would you choose? I’ve thought about this too much. I think this means I’m sure of what I think. I’d try to improve defensive transitions. I bet I’m not alone. The […]

Norwich City 2-2 Arsenal – review

The first game of the Freddie era has come and gone. And in many ways, it was the more things change, the more they stay the same.     Look, I love Freddie. He had red hair, and amongst Henry, Bergkamp, Vieira, Pires, et al., he was arguably our best player in the 01/02 double […]
